UPDATE:  David William Smith was sentenced to three years in prison and 30 years supervised probation.

NORFOLK-The former pastor of a Norfolk church will be sentenced Tuesday afternoon for child porn possession.

35-year-old David William Smith pleaded guilty in July and admitted to having a problem with child porn.

Defense attorney Howard Copeland said his client has been receiving treatment from an EVMS psychologist.

“It's a well known problem addiction to sex and in this case it's pornography. There’s no history or and no evidence or inclining that David Smith has ever had physical contact with any minor,” stressed Copeland.

Smith was pastor at Trinity Lutheran Church at the time of his arrest.
